Always the last weekend in September, the Rugby Volunteer Rescue Squad and Fire Department, have entertained tens of thousands of people since 1976 with their live exhibits of Appalachian culture. Step back into a simple age when horses and mules ground cane into juice to be boiled into sorghum or molasses; when apple cider was the soft drink of the time; when fresh apples were cooked in a copper kettle over an open fire all day long to render apple butter; when Saturday night was reserved for fiddling and making music with neighbors. Such was the lifestyle of the early Appalachian pioneers.
